RAPHA 500 day 1
Our rides start and end in Helsingør, Denmark. We are a couple who usually ride tandem - har been doing brevets the last years. This years Rapha 500 we began with a 50 km around the lake Esrum Sø and the forrest Gribskov clockwise, through the towns Fredensborg, Nødebo, Gadevang, Maarum and from there to Helsingør.

Drte rode on her old mountain bike, an 21 gears GT Aggressor and I on a 4 gears internal geared city bike, a MBK, I bought at a police auction several years ago and gave a front carrier in an attempt to try if it would work out that way - it didn´t!!! The bicycles work well under snow and icy conditions like we had here.
The day before we started this tour we had a sknow storm - during the night we had 5 degrees celsius and therefor a lot of water on the roads.
